Sorghum (Sorghum)
They use that is sweet feed I was shocked at that one on the list. Mine eat corn and table scrapes. They love pasta water over their corn.

I asked the homestead hog group and this has been a great debate. Some of them feed sweet feed too. I was told it was the amount not that we feed it grasually over time. I still do not know I am trying to find a chart with amounts in it and what kind of sorghum. milo is a sorghum.

Mine do not touched them cooked either. Or turnip greenes cooked or raw. Or potatoe peelings. They get picky when they want to.

My pig passed up celery. I guess she thought I was putting her on a diet. We feed her dog food when there are no table scraps.

I've seen too many eating acorns from white oaks to believe that one. As for sweet feed, just like a diet of nothing but ice cream for humans, it can be bad for them if not balanced with other foods. Grain and sweet feed help fatten them, if you want fatty pork. If not just keep 'em on what you feed the herd (table scraps, swine food, etc)
Selenium is important in a pigs diet to support natural immunity, here again though do not over do it. And since when did vitamin A and D (also essential to proper health) become poisonus in proper amounts???

To be safe, rake up the area. Too much of any one thing can be harmful, but if you are keeping them where a few will fall in the pen at a time I would not worry about them, but a huge amount all at once could cause issues.

Acorns, that shocks me too. Our hogs love acorns. He also gets a little sweet feed now and then. Like you said same with sheep it is the amount in the feed.

I wonder, w/the acorns, if it matters what type of oak it is. While there are many different oaks, they all fall into 1 of 2 type, white oak and red (black) oak. The red oaks are higher in tannins than the white oaks.

I know for us, we can eat the acorns off the red oaks if the tannins are first boiled out of them. Whereas white oaks can be basically eaten off the tree.

If you have oaks, and aren't sure if it's a red or a white, look at the leaves. The white oaks have rounded lobes, the red have sharp points. The way to remember which is which is when the white man first came to this country, he had bullets, which are rounded, while the red man had arrows, which are sharp.

I could be wrong, but I think Sorghum may be refering to the plant not the molassis that is rendered from the plant. At least that is what came to mined when I read it. There are many plants that have poisonous parts. Rubarb leaves are deadly, but the stalks are good eating. I think this deserves more reaserch. I will look around the net and see what I can find.

As far as acorns go I think Dizzy may be right. It takes a lot more to get the tannins out of red oak acrons, than white. the white oak acrons only need to be busted up and soaked in a creek for a few hours to be etible. the red oak acorns need a couple of days soak because they have so muchs tannic acid in them.
